Marika,

Do you do all of the workouts on the BBL set? I find I only use Bum Bum and High and Tight. I'm wondering if the others are worth doing. Do you use any of the other workouts and do you like the Sculpt?

Thanks,

Kelly

Sara, Have you tried doing a hybrid of traditional lower body work, and barre inspired lower body work. The barre work seems to 'refine' the results I get with traditional lunges, squats, and dips etc...

I don't understand the concept of kettlebells. I was always taught swinging weights was cheating and dangerous, so I never really considered looking into KB. I'm going to read the thread that's dicussing them now.

Currently doing Meta Omni but combining it with Ballet Body to get the best of both worlds, hopefully!
Hi,

Where can I get this Ballet Body Foldover work? Is it a download? If you download it, where does it go?

Thanks,
Kelly

Exactly my experience!

I would suggest starting with Basics 1 and 2. Each has a glute foldover workout. Yes, these are downloads. When you buy them, Leah sends you the download link. On my computer, they go into the downloads folder and then I drag and drop them into my Fitness/Ballet Body folder. I use Windows Media Center to play them on my TV through Xbox, but there are a bunch of other ways to play them as well.

She IS coming out with 3 DVD's before the end of the year. One will be upper body, one will be lower body, and one will be core (I think that's right).

The workout I mentioned was #10 and is in Archives 1-16, but that is $40 and you probably don't want to spend that much at first.

I'll have to second Kettlebell swings even though I havent done them yet!! I have Ilaria's Atletica workout which is modified kettlebell workout with dumbells and my glutes were so sore the next day!

The other time I felt my glutes like that was with Margaret Richards' Home Improvement floorwork, so I second the MR rec as well!

Coming in next would be either Tonique Mat or Squeeze & Squeeze Stronger

Kelly, I did the whole Slim & Lift rotation as designed. After that I only did BB and High & Tight. Funny I didn't do Sculpt more often because I think it's a great workout too.
